The eyebrows frame our eyes and structure the features of our face, hence the importance of taking care of the lines of your eyebrow arches. Make-up can be a very interesting and reliable ally to enhance your eyebrows and highlight your eyes. But, how to achieve eyebrow makeup while obtaining a natural result? Discover practical tips and advice to enhance your eyebrows while highlighting your natural beauty.
Get off to a good start with careful hair removal
To achieve a successful eyebrow make-up, it is essential to start with a good base. If you are not yet an expert, take the time to go to a beauty salon to have your eyebrows waxed , at least the first few times. This will allow you to glean valuable advice and know how to hide any small imperfections (asymmetrical eyebrows, too straight, drooping, sparse eyebrows, etc.).
Choosing the right shade for your eyebrow makeup
To move on to the actual makeup stage, you must first choose your makeup carefully. Whether you opt for an eyebrow pencil or a colored fixing gel , the choice of color will be decisive in the success of your makeup.
The ideal is to choose an eyebrow pencil or fixing gel that is transparent or the same color as your natural shade. For people with naturally very light hair, you can opt for a slightly darker shade, to better highlight your eyebrows and enhance their base color. Choosing the shade of your makeup is an important step, because if you choose a pencil that is not suited to your original color, the final result may not look natural and appear too overdone.
Restructure your eyebrow line with make-up
To restructure the line of your eyebrows using make-up, experts mainly focus on three areas of your eyebrows:
- The head of the eyebrow which is delimited by the line which passes through the bridge of the nose and the inner corner of the eye,
- The arch of the eyebrow, which is located on the line that passes through the bridge of the nose and the center of the eye,
- The tail of the eyebrow, which is on the line that passes through the bridge of the nose and the outer corner of the eye.
To have naturally harmonious eyebrows, it is essential that the line of your eyebrows corresponds to the outline delimited by its three zones.
The advantage, if you already have well-plucked eyebrows, is that the outline of these areas will already be respected. It will therefore simply be enough to extend certain lines in the case of a non-existent eyebrow head or an eyebrow tail that is too short.
Tips for highlighting your eyes
Once your eyebrows have been well redefined, you can perfect and further enhance your eyebrows by using eye shadow and highlighter to brighten your eyes. Here are the steps to follow for a sublime and natural make-up of your eyebrows:
- Redraw the line of your eyebrows, respecting the delineation of the key areas of your eyebrows with a pencil of a suitable shade.
- Choose a light eyeshadow or white pencil. Apply it under your eyebrows and blend your line. This will better highlight your eyebrows.
- Finally, put a touch of highlighter on the inner corner of your eye to brighten your eyes.
For an even more intense look, a little advice: don't hesitate to use black eyeliner (preferably) and put on mascara.
Give more thickness to your eyebrows with natural effect makeup
If you have sparse eyebrows, you can fill in the gaps using an eyebrow pencil. Draw small lines in the natural direction of your hair and blur your makeup to avoid clumps. This will give a thicker effect to your eyebrows while maintaining a natural look.
If you are satisfied with this technique, but you think it takes too long to perform. Consider finding out about permanent makeup. Microblading uses a technique based on dermopigments which is known for its natural appearance. Using a device that allows high precision, the beautician draws the eyebrow hairs one by one for an effect that is intended to be as close as possible to natural eyebrows. This technique is therefore ideal for people with sparse eyebrows, since it allows you to enjoy long-lasting makeup without having to apply makeup daily.
